Am so glad I determined this is my last year doing this crap. I won't be supporting any from here on in. They'll all be taking our money and riding high regardless. It's really a no win battle from her on in."
My husband is right there with you. He's so disgusted that he's done. This was all fixed and decided back in 2008.
Yep, Romney backed off from the race, with the Promise he'd be "next in line", to give it to McCain.. who in turn handed it to Obama.
In this Primary Paul covered Romney's flank for a long time in every state...then when Newt surged the GOP, along with the Romney media, pushed Santorum forward to divert the social conservatives who generally are easily led.
Santorum then played his GOP role very well in helping them to squash Newts surge at all costs. Until PA. where Santorum would not carry another loss on his record for Pa...that and with Promise he'd serve with the Romney administration, and so with the Newt media blackout he could bow out gracefully and protect his political career.
His refusal to release his delegates to Newt spoke volumes...obvious waiting til Newt appeared all but out of the race he could then appear to be up for negotiating with Romney, though that fix was in long ago, and release his delegates to secure Romneys election.
Sadly many conservatives once again took the bait of Santorum and had no understanding of the game-board.
True to form Santorum has secured his role for playing his GOP role exatly as they hoped ...and is his history in congress when they need him for his baffonery.
